Which movie was better?
>>
Keit-Ai.
>>
KnK
Yamada wins by a huge margin over Shinkai.
>>
>>157692396
>Kimi no Na wa
Obnoxious music insertion, amv tier storytelling, sensationalist garbage dependent on muh earthquake incident, 1-dimensional characters, nonsensical plot, mediocre character animation, half-baked thematic delivery, hackneyed dialogue. Overall it's pretty much the worst anime film of the decade
>Koe no Katachi
Great storytelling, very delicate direction, careful use of sound mixing, complex imagery, actually grounded and realistic except for that one moment, memorable characters, meaningful themes, meticulous character acting. 2016 AOTY.
>>
Both where shait, fampai.
>>
Koe no Katachi could have been great but it was to much off a bit cryfest without actually saying something.

Katachi had a way more compelling plot for the first half and then almost fizzled with the melodrama bombs, but managed to pull through by ending better than the manga. Speaking of that, a lot of fat was trimmed from the manga for better or worse. The movie subplot was dropped at the expense of some development of side characters, but the movie was framed as Shouya's journey so it's not too big an issue.

Your Name was fantastic, but its just a remix of 5cm and Voices of a Distant Star with a happier ending for the sake of theater viewers. Unlike 5cm, theres no lasting impression or feeling after you've finished watching. It's undeniably a good movie, but nothing about it really sticks in my mind, and unlike other Shinkai works like Garden of Feet, theres less pretty scenery porn to look at.

Well it's not that it didn't say anything.
But there were so many emotional moments and they were all so similar.
I fucking love the beginning of the movie.
But a lot of what happened felt kinda pointless and messy despite it looking so beautiful.
I just don't like how it was all presented.
>muh guilt
>muh change
>muh friends
They were all crying about the same bullshit for an entire hour.
I realize that the characters are actually kind of nuanced but since the movies runtime didn't give them much time to explore everyone, so they all felt kind of flat to me.

Again, I liked the movie but it was certainly flawed.
It's hard to put into words, maybe it was the dialogues too.

Koe no Katachi wasn't that impressive but it's on my mind constantly for 5th day now and I'm now exhausted from reading every appearing thread about it.

We can't. Knkfags are way too salty.
>>
>>157693913
Point 1,3,4,5,9,10 are valid points.
>>
It's a shame Koe no Katachi's BDs aren't selling all that much. Contrary to what some lickers and ultimatebetamax want to believe, they did not make much profit from the theater screenings, it was the BDs they had a hand on and also rights to some merch.
>>
>>157694117
The screenings more than doubled the production costs. You have no idea what you're talking about. Kaguya Hime only cost 30 million dollars to make, for example, and that one was clearly a lot more expensive than the average Ghibli film (which in turn is more expensive than the average anime film.)
>>
>>157694325
Screenings profit went to Shochiku not KyoAni.
>>
>>157694325
>Kaguya Hime only cost 30 million dollars to make
50 million. The Wind Rises cost 30 million.
>>
>>157694439
KyoAni didn't shoulder the whole cost either. Screening profits are split between the production companies and the publishers.
>>
Shinkai is much cuter than Yamada.
>>
>>157694504
Not split evenly, Shochiku was in charge of distribution of the film. KyoAni covered costs for production and had rights to BD sales and merch.

>>
>>157694648
Being on top doesn't mean you have control over everything or spent the most of every detail of the film's production.

I mean, you can tell who had control over the film's theater run when it was Shochiku that cut screenings almost in half by the third week, despite the movie picking up pace. Koe no Katachi would've definitely grossed over 3 billion if not for that mistake, and it was a mistake on their part since it was their highest grossing film that year.
>>
>>157693939
Then you're only remembering it because of the threads. Kyoanifags spam their shit threads to make that garbage movie more relevant.

Kimi no Na Wa its a good flick, you will have a good time watching it, visuals are nice, the inserts songs are ok but nothing that will let you thinking.
Koe no Katachi is a film. It makes you think, its not made so the audience feels good but so it reflects about the themes presented on it.

It's obvious you haven't seen either film I brought up, so shut the fuck up already.

>>157696185
Shinkai was mostly just afraid that if Kimi no na wa was hailed as a record-setting masterpiece, his following career as a director could be compromised.

He doesn't want to handle the burden that he might have hit his peak.

And if we discard /a/:s opinion due to most of us being contrarians, Kimi no na wa has become exactly what Shinkai feared it would become.
>>
>>157696185
At least he's sincere.
When will Yamada admit that her movie is a poorly paced, bloated mess, drowned in overblown, hideous effects to hide the incompetent storytelling?
>>
>>157695955
>Watercolour is hard so it must be impressive
The methodology should not have any influence on the end result, that scene has no purpose at all. You can animate anything as complex as you want but if it isn't actually saying anything, isn't showing anything, doesn't even look real, then it's not good animation.
>>
>>157695955
>That Koe scene looks good but it's nowhere near as impressive as the Kimi scene
Absolute pleb. The Kimi no na wa scene is mostly effects animation. Lots of lines jumping all over the place. It's not even the most impressive scene in Kimi no na wa (the sake ceremony by Okiura is miles beter). Goes to show how little you know about animation.
>the fact that it was made using watercolor already puts it above most sakuga
A bunch of inconsequential nonsense. Animation is animation, it's the movement that matters, not what you draw each frame with.
>>
>>157696358
If Shinkai is sincere then KnK must not be any of those things you state, since Shinkai sincerely stated Yamada's directing was spectacular in KnK.
>>
>>157696185
>>157696258
Shinkai was just being humble. Meanwhile you even have Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli praising it and Miyazaki being tsundere for it.

I haven't watched Your Name yet but I feel like KnK fixed a lot of problems that the manga had, so even if I end up agreeing that Your Name is better when I see it, I'm still gonna think that KnK is a pretty damn good movie since it did a lot of good things in my opinion.

Well, I think Shinkai was the last person in the world to believe that Kimi No Na Wa would become globally the highest-grossing anime movie of all time. From being a relatively minor name in the business, suddenly he beat EVERYONE he has ever looked up to.

Shinkai's burden is now to either make something even better, or to fade away in the shadow of the behemoth. It doesn't matter if the movies you make later are "better", he will always be reminded for the rest of his career that he can't beat Kimi No Na Wa. And that's pretty bad for someone who can have more than 20 years of his career still ahead of him.

Yes, you don't. It's very typical of plebs to fawn over effects animation when it's actually a lot less difficult to do than character animation.

>How so?
The only thing more cumbersome with it is the fact that you have to be careful not to smear the paint while it's still wet, and you can't erase it, unlike pencils. But this comes with knowing how to use a brush properly. Pencil or brush, charcoal or watercolor -- they're just different techniques. As for erasing, you usually do a rough draft in pencil and then paint on new paper after you're confident about which lines you want.

It's obvious you're clueless about this so just drop it already.

I find it hilarious how some KyoAni fans can be very hipocritical. You reject every piece of abstract animation from other studios and animators, calling it unnecesary or unrealistic but fawn all over Hyouka's own abstract animation. You're not even aware of this double standard you have.

It was supposed to be hard to watch and telegraphed a rape encounter, obviously.

Those who got hard watching it have particular tastes, and that's fine, but they got hard because what was meant to be telegraphed as a physical sexual confrontation did so successfully.

Fighting isn't puritanical in form. See: Any wrestling or MMA match. It's an uncomfortable segment to watch because they are actually fighting. It's possibly the most realistic fight between normal people in Anime.

It's not like Kyoani has full on sakuga scenes constantly, but they are the best when it comes to consistency. Other studios like to have mediocre character animation in non-important scenes because it gets the job done while blowing their load on important scenes. IG and A1 do this most, same as most other studios, Ghibli less so.

If I had to put numbers on it, IG and AI go from between 50% effort and 100% effort into character animation, Ghibli at 60% 90%, while Kyoani operates at a constant 80%
Which you prefer is entirely up to you but I like the consistency of Kyoani. Gives the world a much more solid and realistic feeling.

>Another nationalist apologetic piece.
I have read the manga. It was explicitly harsh towards the Ultranationalist government. If anything, the title suggests that it tries to tell a story of another 'side' of WW II Japan. Japan that "could have been"; how the MC could have been a painter instead, and so forth. Also, Japan that can endure any hardships thrown at them, including from their own people. It might not seem convincingly done to a lot of foreigners, including me, but for the Japanese it does (which really should have been the other way around, considering the title).

Maybe I'm wrong, but whatever.

I kind of agree, they either removed or played down most gut-wrenching scenes from the manga. Even though the attempted suicide scene looked great, it was too artistic, didn't have that raw feel from the manga.

It's hypocritical. It's using some rare exceptions to show an inaccurate, romanticised view of the time. It's the same as say some western film trying to retcon the existence of women handing out cowardice feathers to men who refused to enrol in WW1.

Within the context of the time, yes it does. All you did is misusing political concepts you clearly have no understanding of, so that the film fits towards your preconceived ideological framework, and should be filtered from your PC thought. As a result, your argument is unconvincing, generalized, and as vague as any politically-correct, fake criticism.

Kimi no Na wa may be a bit clichéd and simple in terms of plot, but it works as a movie. KnK is a fucking mess with that amount of retarded melodrama compressed into a movie. They literally couldn't have picked a worse medium.

Kimi no Na Wa > Koe no Katachi
Kono Seaki is the best movie for me but If I have to pick one from those two, it will be Kimi no Na Wa.
Koe no Katachi just mediocre and full of annoying characters. My Life as a Zucchini is better movie that deal with similar subject.

>>157703922
Characters = Kimi no Na wa, simply for the fact that they're not spread thing and only really focus on the two, Half of Koe's side characters are irrelevant to the movie adaptation.

Plot = Kimi no Na wa, more original, better structured and created from the ground up to be a movie, unlike Koe which is an adaptation and has quite a few pacing issues.

Animation = Kimi no Na wa, had more and more impressive sakuga, yes this is including character acting. Kinda annoyed by people thinking Koe was better here. Literal industry legends worked on Kimi no Na wa, you just can't compare KyoAni's inhouse animators to them.

Sound and Music = Koe no Katachi, Kimi's OST was catchy but generic pop trash. Koe's soundtrack really blends well with the theme of the movie.

To be honest sales don't matter in most other shows made by other studios. You have shit like Naruto that sells fuckall discs but it's more succesful and popular than every Kyoani anime combined. You don't even have to go that far with mainstream anime. Reddit Zero light novels and merch are killing it at the moment, the franchise is huge, bigger than any recent Kyoani series, including Free and Chuu2 S1, despite the BDs not selling as much as either of those.

Kyoani either adapts their own unknown LNs that no one buys, or buys the anime rights for someone else's novel. If a KyoAni show flops in disc sales that's pretty much it.

KyoAni shop merchandise is comprised of pins, keychains and posters, they may sell enough for 1 or 2 episodes worth of budget but I don't really see them making the big bucks like with a franchise like LoveLive or Macross for example.

The two movies don't really have a similar vibe to them in any respect really.

KnK was a redemption story and Your Name was a star-crossed lovers story in a sense. Broad, but they both had a lot of elements to them.

Personally - and from what seems to be the aggregate opinion from many reviewers - KnK had an emotional backbone to it that was a lot stronger than Your name. The emotional themes in KnK were ones that a lot of the audience could really relate to; bullying, guilt, loneliness/isolation, self-loathing, desperation and fear, the longing to be accepted and loved. Those elements really were woven together into a story that had a unique spark to it with the characters and their situations and perspectives. The framework for all of this was solidly built with honesty as the main policy. The director wanted to drive home this story to the heart with these down-to-earth ideals and I think they pulled it off, I was impacted by the ending for sure.

Your Name was a much more fantastical movie - still tried to remain grounded - that delved into what people want to believe in, rather than what they're faced with everyday. Shinkai really wanted to make a movie that made people laugh for amusement, chuckle out of embarrassment and maybe cry with joy at some parts. The different timelines and the star-crossed lovers theme was a little magical but I think Shinkai made it comfortable in that we we're hoping all along it would turn out alright in the end.

Technical aspects for both movies were great. Your Name knocked it out of the park with pure, fantastic visuals, polished characters and settings, and KnK had beautiful character animations with realistic and immersive settings for the story. The music in KnK was a tad better with timings and choice of musicality, the OST in the finale was gripping and super-impactful.

I personally like KnK more but Your Name was great in it's own right.

The right because it has pretty much better everything overall. It's a movie telling a movie-length story. You can see it in the LN which is also pretty short. KnK movie feels like an adaptation of a manga so it feels dragged at places and with a payoff that is nowhere as powerful as Your Name.

Both in animation quality, actor's works, direction, soundtrack, and content, Koe no Katachi is a clearly better film than Kimi no Na Wa (and you'd have to watch a lot of films, not just animation, to understand the qualitative difference.

People don't understand what is going on with Koe no Katachi's soundtrack, if they haven't heard Johann Sebastian Bach's Invention, Steve Reich, or Dead or Alive, and are watching it online with bad audio. It's the same thing with its animation; if people aren't careful enough, they don't see the quality in people's movements (particularly walking or running) which is rather poor than average in Kimi no Na Wa (even ripples in the river with koi fishes and fruits falling after an emotional brawl scene was stunning in Koe no Katachi), as well as cinematographic techniques involving framing, lighting, focus and blurs (which is very sophisticated and interesting in Naoko Yamada's direction. Makoto Shikai is a good and respectable director who I admire, and he has great challenging spirit considering that he started making animated films on his own, but ...)

I would have liked Kimi no Na Wa more if it had better animation, better voice acting, better use of cinematography and soundtrack (although its signature song is very nice), and content (if only it had a sort of bitter-sweet growing up ending, with the main character choosing to date the senpai and the memory slowly fading, as the happy ending was a bit too forced to fully enjoy for me! And also, it poorly addressed one issue which is acute in Japan, which is how to deal with fading memories of the lost ones in a natural disaster; Shinkai fell short on properly facing the issue although touching on it).

I pin point exact scenes that where poorly done and wouldn't communicate well with people who haven't read the manga, and i'm right.

The look of confusing at all these poorly communicated, "artsy" directorial choices, it's just sad really.

Regardless of what you say, I know for a fact that anyone who claiming having not read the manga before it is partially lying. "Spoilers" were everywhere here, moreso when the thing was being serialized, people posting manga pages and quoting events from the series. I didn't read the manga either but I had a pretty clear idea of the plot of this movie, the twists and ending.

I honestly can't tell if this movie is too smart or just too unclear, but if people who actually went in fresh to see the movie are complaining, I guess we should at least consider the posibility of the movie not being well executed.

It's not lying, it's not adding additional info.
If you want to know this additional info: I only knew the girl is mute, gets bullied and her confession doesn't come through (from PV though, not /a/. you have to be retarded/like spoilers to visit threads of things you haven't watched yet).
Still not sure how it helps, every single one thing I knew got spelled out so clearly in the movie I doubt anybody could misunderstand them.

Nothing about the 2nd half of Kimi no Na wa made any sense and relied on the sentimental soundtrack and superficial emotional scenes to carry it through. I think if anyone claims they understood what was going on and have a logical explanation for all of the plot they are lying to themselves.

KnK could unironically be one of the worst anime movies ever made.
Usually even bad movies have a somewhat functional script, and are trying to tell a story appropriate for a movie length.
KnK tries to rush through 7 volumes worth of content in 2 hours, and thinks that cutting some fluff while leaving intact every major plot point and the entire huge cast of characters is enough to turn a serialized narrative into an effective film.
Absolutely pitiful.

Seems like the biggest complain for KnK is it doesnt follow the manga close enough. It followed it very closely, like 88% of the manga was in it. I dunno why people really care about the movie making McGuffin part to trash the movie to that extent.

Your Name was a mini epic or exaggerating of grass is greener on the other with world class animation and and great sound track while Silent Voice is a story of extreme potential suicidal bullying with top grade animation and good sound track.

The Koe no Katachi anime and manga are completely different experiences.

Say it ain't so. How about waiting until we actually get some points on ShitKolle before you go gloating too much.

As someone who hasn't read or watched KnK this felt intentionally sexual

holy shit, that's a lot of old people.

>>157692396
Koe no Katachi had a better theme and superior animation, so that.

You hit the nail on the head, it's just a lot of the mangas major plot points poorly stitched together without any of the emotional build up or character relationships.

Now that the japs decided to edit the image to compare the same western model used in the original image with an equal japanese model instead of an ugly girl you move the goalpost.

Dump /pol/tards.

I wanted to like KnK, I really did, but as soon as I saw the MC I immediately thought of that cunt ass bitch shit from Reddit:Zero and the film was instantly ruined for me, I mean fucking seriously? 0/10 it wasnt even good, KyoAnusniggershitters BTFO once again as usual, if you liked this movie your an idiot.
>>
>>157723870
>that cunt ass bitch shit from Reddit:Zero

Kek. You're right, I just noticed that.
>>
Haven't watched KNNW so I won't make a comparison, but I finished KNK and for me it was good, but with a somewhat anticlimactic end. Basically left me wondering
>so what?
>>
>>157692396
I'm pretty late for this but Koe no katachi is 1 film only? how did they adapted it?
>>
>>157725973
Refocused around Shouya
>>
>>157726026
Too bad then.

I really like Sahara and Mashiba but most of their scenes must be left out right?
>>
>>157726115
Yup, they're minor characters now. It's still a very good movie though.
>>
Is anyone else waiting until the BDs before seeing your name?
>>
>>157726323
Why would you?

Watching on theater can be a better experience with a good audience anyways.
>>
Just watched KnK and it was disappointing. Sure it's pretty and important scenes were well produced, but only if you ignore the way they are poorly stitched together with nowhere near enough character development to justify the characters' reactions to many of the events. It's like a bad recap movie.
>>
>>157727548
What needed more justification?

>>157692664
your not alone anon-kun...
Didn't even come within 50 miles of me here in america.

I understand why it could feel like that, the buildup to Xs falling was more intense because the manga spent forever in ishida's head, but the anime doesn't have time to be inside his head all that much. And i don't think ishida cried in the manga during that scene, so it's a little more jarring to see him cry in the film when there weren't any peaks into his mind.
>>
Kimi no na wa
KnK is good too though
>>
>>157692396
KnK was better by far
Your Name is a fucking trash meme that was taken to seriously
>>
The scene where Ishida insults everyone was poorly done
>>
I just saw your name 3 hours ago as it played at a local hippie theatre by me.

I almost cried on multiple times.

I loved it alot.
>>
Kiki no na wa requires you to suspend your disbelief way too much while also trying to be completely straight. I just could not get into it. I also felt the whole everyone works together to save the day ending was really out of place and I am starting to hate that shit.

Koe no katachi does have some convenient coincidences but the overall story had much more of an impact on me.
>>
>>157692396
Your name.
Knk pacing was fucking shit.
>>
>>157717935
Nice reddit spacing.

I enjoyed Your Name more.

That said Yuzuru is best girl

Of course I can. It's the truth. (Nice reddit spacing by the way.)

Nothing. This is typical mangatard autism.
>>
>>157727937
Hello autist. Not everyone needs the character's inner life spoonfed to them to understand what is going on with their development.

Kimi no nawa

What, these were two different movies?

6/10. Gordon's dialogue could've been better.
>>
I have NEVER in my whole life of watching anime, korean drama and generally tv series/shows etc. Hated a character as much as I hate Ueno Naoka.

This bitch deserves N-O-T-H-I-N-G
She is a selfish, egocentric piece of shit that destroyed both shokos and shouyas life. If it wasn’t for her it wouldn’t be this bad! I really don’t know why people like her… She’s the worst.
>>
Looking around, I see Yamada being hailed as this new "artsy" director. Since when this starts happening? I never heard of her until this movie.
>>
>>157732009
>Since when this starts happening?
K-On S2.
>>
>>157732009
>I never heard of her until this movie.
She was responsible for K-On, love it or hate it, it is one of the most influential modern anime of the last decade, since every other studio started cramming out moeshit for years to try replicate its success.
>>
>>157732030
>K-On

So, Digibro confirmed for liking KnK more than Kimi no Na Wa.
>>
>>157732069
K-On truly was a mistake.

It wasn't even that good as an SoL.
>>
>>157732105
K-On s1 was terrible, but s2 was quite good for a SoL. I don't know how s1 got so popular it was pretty much mediocre in every way.
>>
How many movies have you watched from the past 7 years?
>>
>>157692396
Both are overrated normalfag bait anime.
But I guess koe no katachi is better. Not in a sense that is good but in a sense that it's 6/10 not 5/10
